Guys, I started my business when I was 14 pulling a mower behind my bike with the trimmer and blower bungied to the mower. That was 15 years ago. The business now does many 6 figures closing on 7 this year. Back when I was your age, I remember thinking like some of you guys; 'If I get this account, then I get to buy this mower'. Best advice I can give you is to be happy with what you have. Dont lust over the shiny new equipment. Save your money. Go to college and learn BUSINESS. Then, come back and treat your organization as a business. That means systems, procedures, etc. At that point, it becomes like printing money. No joke.
